estimatePortStd

Estimate standard deviation of portfolio returns

Syntax

pstd = estimatePortStd(obj,pwgt)

Description

example

pstd = estimatePortStd(obj,pwgt) estimate standard deviation of portfolio returns for PortfolioCVaR or PortfolioMAD objects. For details on the workflows, see PortfolioCVaR Object Workflow and PortfolioMAD Object Workflow.

Examples

Given a portfolio pwgt, use the estimatePortStd function to show the standard deviation of portfolio returns.

m = [ 0.05; 0.1; 0.12; 0.18 ];
C = [ 0.0064 0.00408 0.00192 0; 
    0.00408 0.0289 0.0204 0.0119;
    0.00192 0.0204 0.0576 0.0336;
    0 0.0119 0.0336 0.1225 ];
m = m/12;
C = C/12;

rng(11);

AssetScenarios = mvnrnd(m, C, 20000);

p = PortfolioCVaR;
p = setScenarios(p, AssetScenarios);
p = setDefaultConstraints(p);
p = setProbabilityLevel(p, 0.95);

pwgt = estimateFrontierLimits(p);

pstd = estimatePortStd(p, pwgt);
disp(pstd)
    0.0223
    0.1010

The function rng(seed) resets the random number generator to produce the documented results. It is not necessary to reset the random number generator to simulate scenarios.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Object for portfolio, specified using a PortfolioCVaR or PortfolioMADobject.

For more information on creating a PortfolioCVaR or PortfolioMAD object, see

Data Types: object

Collection of portfolios, specified as a NumAssets-by-NumPorts matrix, where NumAssets is the number of assets in the universe and NumPorts is the number of portfolios in the collection of portfolios.

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Estimates for standard deviations of portfolio returns for each portfolio in pwgt, returned as a NumPorts vector.

Tips

You can also use dot notation to estimate the standard deviation of portfolio returns.

pstd = obj.estimatePortStd(pwgt);
